Dustin’s Paw, one of our grant recipients, has treated us to yearly presentations on the Assistance Dog Program, providing handouts full of pictures, stories and letters from their daily visits working with special needs children in the Boise area. We’ve enjoyed stories like “What’s a Toilet Puller?” told by Diane Rampelberg, handler of Ovelle and Prairie IV. Diane has also included descriptions of the special learning toys and how they are used provided as gifts at the annual Christmas party for the children attending STARS Pediatrics/Jumpstart. We’ve been able to read letters written by Speech and Language Pathologists, Occupational Therapists, Physical Therapists and the Coordinator of Jumpstart, supporting the achievements of Dustin’s Paw. We cannot thank Diane, Ovelle and Prairie IV enough for their endless commitment to educated and rehabilitate, with such kindness and skill, the children of our community. – Saint Alphonsus Auxiliary, Grantors of Dustin’s Paw since 2007
